Synopsis

"First I've got no master, then all of a sudden I've got two!...I can't wait on both of them...Wait a minute...Get two pay packets, and eat and drink for two? Why not?" Carlo Goldoni's crafty servant who turns somersaults to please both his masters and serve himself is one of the great classic commedia dell'arte plays of world drama. This new adaptation by Dorothy Louise captures the remarkable pace of the story in fresh dialogue that is attuned to contemporary American audiences.
